LII. THE SEVEN METAL MOUNTAINS AND THE ELECT ONE.

LII

1And after those days in that place where I had seen all the visions of that which is hidden -for 2I had been carried off in a whirlwind and they had borne me towards the west -There mine eyes saw all the secret things of heaven that shall be, a mountain of iron, and a mountain of copper, and a mountain of silver, and a mountain of gold, and a mountain of soft metal, and a mountain of lead. 3And I asked the angel who went with me, saying, 'What things are these which I have seen in 4secret?' And he said unto me: 'All these things which thou hast seen shall serve the dominion of His Anointed that he may be potent and mighty on the earth.' 5And that angel of peace answered, saying unto me: 'Wait a little, and there shall be revealed unto thee all the secret things which surround the Lord of Spirits.
6And these mountains which thine eyes have seen,
The mountain of iron, and the mountain of copper, and the mountain of silver,
And the mountain of gold, and the mountain of soft metal, and the mountain of lead,
All these shall be in the presence of the Elect One
As wax: before the fire,
And like the water which streams down from above {upon those mountains},
And they shall become powerless before his feet.
7And it shall come to pass in those days that none shall be saved,
Either by gold or by silver,
And none be able to escape.
8And there shall be no iron for war,
Nor shall one clothe oneself with a breastplate.
Bronze shall be of no service,
And tin {shall be of no service and} shall not be esteemed,
And lead shall not be desired.
9And all these things shall be {denied and} destroyed from the surface of the earth,
When the Elect One shall appear before the face of the Lord of Spirits.'

 

51

51:1 After that period, in the place where I had seen every secret sight, I was snatched up in a whirlwind, and carried off westwards.

51:2 There my eyes beheld the secrets of heaven, and all which existed on earth; a mountain of iron, a mountain of copper, a mountain of silver, a mountain of gold, a mountain of fluid metal, and a mountain of lead.

51:3 And I inquired of the angel who went with me, saying, What are these things, which in secret I behold?

51:4 He said, All these things which you behold shall be for the dominion of the Messiah, that he may command, and be powerful upon earth.

51:5 And that angel of peace answered me, saying, Wait but a short time, and you shalt understand, and every secret thing shall be revealed to you, which the Lord of spirits has decreed. Those mountains which you have seen, the mountain of iron, the mountain of copper, the mountain of silver, the mountain of gold, the mountain of fluid metal, and the mountain of lead, all these in the presence of the Elect One shall be like a honeycomb before the fire, and like water descending from above upon these mountains; and shall become debilitated before his feet.

51:6 In those days men shall not be saved by gold and by silver.

51:7 Nor shall they have it in their power to secure themselves, and to fly.

51:8 There shall be neither iron for was, nor a coat of mail for the breast.

51:9 Copper shall be useless; useless also that which neither rusts nor consumes away; and lead shall not be coveted.

51:10 All these things shall be rejected, and perish from off the earth, when the Elect One shall appear in the presence of the Lord of spirits.
